- Repair and stabilize active erosion at the downstream end of Mason Thorson Ells Levee.
|Corps of Engineers Design and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Process
||2020 to 2023|
|Construction||Between Sept. 11-Sept. 30, 2023|
King County is working to limit the impacts of construction. The project site at the downstream end of the levee will be inaccessible during construction. However, construction will not block passage on the water. A memorial bench will be temporarily moved during construction and replaced in the same location when the project is done. A large sequoia tree and two smaller trees are too close to the damaged area and will have to be removed to safely make the repairs to the levee. In their place, nine new trees will be planted behind the levee on public land. The trees will enhance habitat for fish and wildlife.
We will update this webpage with further impacts to roads, sidewalks, trails, or parks in the area as the project moves through design and permitting. We will also post signs and flyers near the project site and notify local businesses and residents before and during construction. To receive updates, please sign up for project announcements.
